Definition of Al Jinn al Ashiq

Jinn al aashiq is not a new expression or understanding.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said the possession of a man by jinn can be out of sexual desire, evil notions, or even love just as it is with humans which is Fahsha’a, i.e. immorality and bad conduct which is forbidden, that is if the two have agreed on the act. However, if only the jinn is doing this out of their will it is oppression.

The one who is committing this crime must be informed of there actions and they will be judged according to Allah and His messenger’s laws which were sent for man and jinn.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said taking pleasure in something or someone is to get what they want from the person or thing as what they wish or desire. This falls under all types of pleasure. The jinn will bring a thing for them to please man, an image or money, take revenge on someone through murder, and in return, they require a man to obey the jinn by making them do acts of shirk, such as sujood to the jinn or another object or taking pleasure in them.
And [mention, O Muhammad], the Day when He will gather them together [and say], “O company of jinn, you have [misled] many of mankind.” And their allies among mankind will say, “Our Lord, some of us made use of others, and we have [now] reached our term, which you appointed for us.” He will say, “The Fire is your residence, wherein you will abide eternally, except for what Allah wills. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing.”


1. Sihr

The jinn accompanies the one who has been bewitched to accomplish his goal. A person who visits a Saahir can be possessed.

2. ‘Ayn

A Shaytaan will enter a person's body through the channel of the evil eye, from the nafs of the one who has given the eye. The Shaytaan will see this channel from the person who gives the evil eye, through jealousy or envy, and will enter the person’s body through this channel.

3. Zaar

Zaar is a trance ceremony that uses drumming and dancing to cure an illness thought to be caused by a demon, it is prohibited by Islam as a pagan practice.
The participants will form a circle and dance until they start losing control of their bodies and the jinn will enter them. Even if one is not taking part, but is present they can be possessed because they are not in a gathering of the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal, but a gathering of the remembrance of Shaytaan.

In most places that are gatherings of Shaytaan, the possibility arises for a person to be possessed. I have had an experiences where patients have been raving, staying out late, listening to loud music, dancing, taking drugs and drinking alcohol and all types of Al Munkar and Al Fahsha’ will be there, and so this is a time when the Shayateen will be there and they will possess a human being.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said there is time that a person who has been possessed out of love, this type is less difficult as others, such as revenge by possession, or by pouring hot water or killing them without knowing, and this is the most difficult type of possession.
What this means, Allahu Alim, is that the possession of a jinn who is taking a revenge is different to the one who possesses for love, they are not trying to kill them, they just want to be with them, even though they can cause them a lot of harm by making them ill, or not appear nice. These are tricks the jinn do so that the person is just theirs, but when it is revenge they are trying to kill the individual.

And Allah knows best.

Treatment of a Patient with a Jinn Aashiq:

he oppression of the jinn begins the moment the person starts to fight against the jinn’s desires. For example, if the jinn desires to smoke, and the person who never smokes begins smoking, or the person begins to watch inappropriate materials on TV or the internet, as soon as the person questions what they are doing and tries to stop doing what is wrong, the jinn will try to punish them.

During the ruqya, the jinn will usually speak and say that they love the person they have possessed, and refuse to leave the person. This is the typical behavior of a lustful jinn. It is very important for a raaqi to pay very close attention to what type of jinn they are dealing with, while he is reciting on someone in such a state, because there are different types of jinn and they have different strengths and characteristics, for example, the afreet jinn will not speak at all, while others will speak straight away.

Shaykh Islam Ibn Taymiyyah said in ‘Majmu al Fatawah’, if the reason of possession is through fawahish – all form sexual desires and disobedience to Allah azza wa jal – touching, seeing, walking towards, to have evil intent concerning sexual desires – it is very important for the raaqi to tell the jinn that this is haraam, and Allah azza wa jal has made this haraam on mankind and jinn. The raaqi is then to deal with them appropriately according to the Qur’an and Sunnah.
When the raaqi is trying to convince the jinn to leave the body, the jinn often refuses, although sometimes they may become Muslim yet still stay with them. Some will not become Muslim because they know that if they become Muslim they will have to obey the commands of Allah and his messenger which in turn will mean they will have to leave and stop being with them sexually, as this is a form of oppression. It is very difficult to help someone who is far away from Allah (swt), since they are confused can start fantasizing and believe that they are in a romantic story, and are not aware of the reality of life.

Ways to take precaution to stop a jinn having sexual intercourse with the patient
• Use Musk al Aswad, or olive oil that has been recited up on the private areas of the patient, every night before they go to sleep.

• Use good scents on their clothing, e.g. Musk al Aswad or Musk al Abyad.
• Sleep in clothing that covers the entire body, i.e. to the wrists and ankles.
• When undressing to say bismillah la illah ila hu. While removing clothing recite ‘Bismillah” as the devil gets blinded and can’t look at the private parts due to this. Another hadith reports that one should say bismillah la ila ha illahu.

• 1 At-Tirmithi 2/505, among others. See ‘Irwa’ul Ghalil no. 49 and Sahihul-Jami’ 3/203
O children of Adam, let not Satan tempt you as he removed your parents from Paradise, stripping them of their clothing to show them their private parts. Indeed, he sees you, he and his tribe, from where you do not see them. Indeed, We have made the devils allies to those who do not believe. (Surah A’raf: 27)

• To recite the morning and evening Adhkaar.
• To pray on time.
• The patient should not sleep alone.
• The patient should seek refuge and protection in Allah from the Shaytaan and sincerely believe

Allah to be sufficient for them.

It is important not to confuse the jinn with Shaytaan, Iblees, who lives on the sea. His troops and followers are the ones who are widespread over the earth. The jinn is everywhere, in the market places, in the homes, in the bathrooms, etc.
Anas ibn Maalik narrated that when the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) ate, he would lick his three fingers, “And he said, ‘If anyone of you drops a piece of food, let him remove any dirt from it and eat it, and not leave it for the Shaytaan.’ And he commanded us to clean the plate, and said, ‘For you do not know where in your food the blessing is.’” (Narrated by Muslim, 2034).

Sexual intercourse between human and jinn
Sexual intercourse between a human and a jinn can happen in one of the following ways;
• The person has a wet dream.
• Masturbation.
• Seeing a form who they will sleep with, with this they can have children.
• A person doesn’t have a wet dream but feels as though someone is having sexual intercourse with them.

The jinn will come to a man or woman in the image they desire, and by doing so will take pleasure by fulfilling their sexual desire.

The marriage of jinn and humans

Shaykh Islam Ibn Taymiyyah says in ‘Majmu’ al-Fatawa’ – if a human being loves a jinn and there is a mutual agreement they can have children. This is something that is well known. Bilqis, the Queen of Saba, one of her fathers were from the jinn. This can be found in Luq Al marjaan.

On occasion, the jinn will say that they want to marry the person they are in love with, in which case it is vital to show the jinn that this concept is absurd since the person cannot see the jinn that is asking for marriage. Even if they were to take a form where the person could see them, it is still forbidden. The evidence is in the Qur'an, where Allah (SWT) says;
“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them, and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought”. (Surah Ar Rum: 21)

Allah (SWT) says here that He created from ‘yourselves’ i.e. for jinn from themselves, and from a human from themselves. Therefore a relationship between mankind and jinn would not be from themselves. The jinn should be informed that if they were to leave something for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, He (swt) will give them something better. For example, Allah (SWT) will reward the believers with Hoor al ‘Ayn in Jannah.
Most of the cases of jinn possession are due to lustful desire. A person who has been desired does not have to be beautiful.
